Neurosquad is a group of Florida Atlantic University scientists who care deeply about the science of mental illness.
We work daily to try to understand the basic molecular biology of autism, major depression, schizophrenia, pain syndromes, addiction, Alzheimer's and other diseases of the brain. Although professionally we are scientists, we are also individuals who have personal experiences with many of these disorders. Those experiences fuel our passion for the science and our desire to work to find new treatments to alleviate the pain for individuals, and their families, suffering from many devastating brain disorders.

Please join us as we walk to support NAMI and brain science.

The Autism Speaks Walk is the world’s largest autism fundraising event dedicated to improving the lives of people with autism.

  • Have a voice with legislators
  • Have access to the information and resources we need
  • Support research and medical discovery
  • Help fund local services through the mission of Autism Speaks.

Together, we can accomplish amazing things for people living with autism.
Set your individual goal at $150 and you’ll be eligible for a Walk Tee Shirt – which, by the way, was purchased from a business that employs people with autism. To see flier, click here.
